Our New Years Eve Box is here!

For this most anticipated New Years Eve, Chris has cooked up a decadent, dippable, sippable party in a box. If you haven’t been able to snag a Clover meal box (they keep selling out!) this one might be our crowning glory, focused on rich finger food and sparkly drinks, and designed to be unpacked and spread out for hours of snacking with minimal prep. Choose your size (2-10 people) then select pickup or free delivery for 12/30 or 12/31. 

To set up your celebration, surround our massive rainbow of dips and spreads with pickled Winter Moon Roots for dipping, house potato chips dusted with paprika, nacho cheesy popcorn, marinated mushrooms and more. Pull a bubbling cheesy brussels dip out of the oven, along with a goat cheese mushroom bruschetta. Heat up a “stupidly yummy” three cheese sourdough pizza from Richard Bourdon at Berkshire Mountain Bakery. Sneak two Flour sticky buns for yourself, or quarter them for everyone to enjoy.

For the first time ever, Clover Meal Boxes will have boozeWe’ve teamed up with cocktail wizard Jared Sadoian of Craigie on Main to make wintery-tinged cocktail kits; add ice and optional mixers from your own liquor cabinet (we’ve got a nonalcoholic version too)

Don’t forget to add a Midnight Breakfast Box. We’re bringing cheesy grits back onto the menu for the first time in 4 years and welcoming sunchoke season with our decadent sunchoke truffle breakfast sandwiches.

🥂 The full menu 🥂

A rainbow of dips
Our favorite spreads and dips of 2020. 
– Silky organic hummus with all the fixings (tahini, olive oil, za’atar)
– Jalapeño cream cheese spread with honey sriracha drizzle (if you were a fan of the Bridgewater sandwich, you’re going to want this)
– Whipped local black bean lime dip (remember me from the Venezuelan Plantain sandwich?)
– Romesco sauce (addictive Spanish red pepper dip)

Fondue without the pot
The Clover version of spinach-artichoke dip has thinly sliced local Brussels sprouts (in season, way yummier than spinach). Pop the tray into the oven til it’s warm and bubbling. Set it on your buffet table with a plate of sliced Clover pita, then visit it multiple times over the course of the night.

I’m writing to share some news: we’ve decided to permanently close CloverROW, our outpost in the Assembly Row neighborhood of Somerville. The closure of this restaurant is part of the whole company’s focus on reaching financial sustainability and positioning us for future growth. These decisions are really hard, but they’re necessary steps for us to simplify Clover. And, happily, all the amazing staff at CloverROW, including the manager Joe, will be able to move into other Clover restaurants. The math is straightforward…

These sweet potato latkes date back to early days on the Clover food truck. They’re so yummy and the sweet potatoes lend them such a fun golden color. They’re probably the most popular item in our Hanukkah Meal Box, which you can get delivered on December 7th. Inside the box you’ll find:

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. We will be closed Thursday 11/23 at all locations. For our kitchen team, it will be a good chance to rest after prepping a ton of Brussels casseroles for our Thanksgiving Box : ) As for the days surrounding Thanksgiving, we’ll be open normal hours, except for CloverFIN (Financial District) and CloverHSC (Harvard Science Center) which will be closed tomorrow and Friday. CloverHSQ (Harvard Square) will be closing early (at 8pm) tomorrow.

I’m not a big believer in multitasking (which, in my experience, is doing a bunch of things simultaneously and badly.) But there’s a lot going on at Clover right now, so I had to break my No Multitasking Rule on Wednesday. I asked Michele and Greg on our Finance team if they’d mind if I took myself off video during a meeting to review Accounts Payable. “I have to draw a cartoon Delicata Squash,” I explained, reasonably.

Some of you have been asking for a sides-only box – and it’s true, sides are the best part, aren’t they? We’re making a limited number of boxes with mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and King Brussels’ Casserole. Each Sides Box serves 6-8 people and can be delivered to your door for 11/21 or 11/22.

The moment you’ve waited for is here. Western Mass Brussels sprouts are back in the restaurants, which means the King himself has landed! What’s on this glorious sandwich and why is it the King of all seasonal sandwiches? A dijon-mayo spread, smoked Grafton cheddar, fried Brussels tossed with za’atar (a Middle Eastern spice blend), pickled red cabbage, and toasted hazelnuts.

On Friday we had a company meeting with all our leadership to talk about a decision we’ve made about the future of Clover. We are all focused on putting Clover on solid financial footing so we can continue to make the food you love for many years to come. COVID changed everything for restaurants like us. The way we eat, drink, work, and get together has shifted substantially and, while Clover has seen a steady recovery in sales…

Julia here. Today, October 29, is Clover’s birthday! 15 years of perfect pita, crispy chickpea fritters, countless sandwiches that cycle with the seasons, and of course the occasional birthday cupcake. How lucky are we? Although I’ve been working at Clover for a year and a half, this was my first week as CEO. I’m excited and honored to be stepping into this role. I’ve been a Clover enthusiast for a long time – since my first taste of a Blue Oyster Mushroom sandwich as a grad student in 2013. As COO and now as CEO…

If you stop by tomorrow (Friday 10/27) around 11am, you might be treated to a bit of Clover history in the form of a carrot cupcake with buttercream frosting. One per paying customer, while they last! And they may not last long : )

I’ve recently asked somebody who believes in Clover as much as I do to step into the CEO role. Julia Wrin Piper has been Clover’s COO for the past 18 months and will take over running the company day-to-day. I’ll be shifting my efforts to provide support for Julia and the team, work on growth opportunities, and pursue partnerships that will amplify Clover’s mission. I’ll remain a member of the Board of Directors and active as an advisor and mentor. Clover is facing a potent mix of opportunity and challenge right now and I know Julia is exactly the right person to lead the team through these twists and turns.

On 10/29 Clover will turn 15 years old. It’s been 15 years since we first pulled up a tiny white food truck to the MIT campus in hopes of testing a menu that could make a dent in global warming. Since then we’ve supported so many local farmers; had tons of adventures on board trucks and restaurants; and met tons of wonderful customers. And most of all we’ve made food. Lots and lots of food. In honor of our 15th birthday, we sent out a survey asking you about your favorite LONG-LOST MENU ITEMS. We’ve picked the top results and we’re going to bring them back for one day only – in the form of a Birthday Meal Box!
